    What sets us apart from the rest, is our staff. They live, work and play on the Big Hole River and will give you insight on fishing conditions, stretches of river fishing best and what the trout are eating. Our Staff are known for having the best attitude in the business and we take great pride in that. Too many fly shops nowadays have this bad attitude that absolutely drives us crazy! conceited, too good for school mentality. If your one of them and don’t really enjoy fishing and do it because its a cool fad please use our competitors, heck we will even give their phone number. If you’re seeking great customer service, best guides and the best river knowledge, you’ve came to the right place. We are the only locally owned fly shop in our area and knowledge that only comes from being a Montanan. True Montana Hospitality! Be sure to visit even if your wearing your waders, after all your next to the river. ( Waders – Boots are welcomed)
